Black is Black

Post by High Threshold »

Los Bravos was a Spanish beat group, formed in 1965 and based in Madrid. Their single "Black is Black" reached no. 2 in the United Kingdom in July 1966 and no. 4 in the United States. ............ The track was written by Tony Hayes and Steve Wadey, in their recording studio for cutting demo discs in Hoo St Werburgh, near Rochester, Kent, England ..... The band was an amalgamation of two pop groups, Los Sonor from Madrid and The Runaways from Mallorca. Los Bravos' lead singer, Mike Kogel, was from Germany. ....... One of Los Bravos' founding members Manuel Fernández committed suicide on 20 May 1967, at the age of 23, after the death of his bride, Lottie Rey, in an auto accident.

I have this niggling suspicion that a clip of Black is Black was posted years ago on FG but that it was Belle Epoch's version, it was in colour and it led to a discussion about what exactly the group contributed to their performance. But I can't find the thread. It's a bit early in the day to try to remember the answer we came to.

I am going to regret clicking on that link for the rest of the day.
